Kasey Kahne discusses racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:
What are your thoughts on NHMS? “It’s a track that has very long corners, so it’s going to be important that we get our Budweiser Ford to roll really well through the center of the corners. The straightaways are long for just a one-mile track and the turns are extremely flat, so having good brakes that will last you to the end is important if you want to run well.”
